God bless you BBC4. Every so often you’ll come up with a cracking idea for a season of programming, like last year’s Ghost Story season. Now we’ve got ‘British Spies Season’.
I can’t seem to find an in-depth listing of what’s in it, but there’s definitely a bit of Spooks, a bit of Smiley (don’t know whether it was Tinker, Tailor or Smiley’s People) and some decent documentaries.
It probably won’t include The Sandbaggers, that being a Yorkshire programme, but I live in hope. I’ll keep you updated as I find out more.
UPDATE: The trailer’s up on the BBC Four site.
